Nobody there when we were. Apparently it is rarely used when nothing is going on at the fairgrounds. Good location for us to visit family. Parked on grass. No hosts or employees ever seemed to come around. Open from several surface streets. Did not feel entirely secure. But no problems. To use restrooms w/showers, you need to go to the fairgrounds office during business hours (Mon-Fri) and pick up a key after providing a $25 deposit. We would stay here again.

We stayed 5 nights. Wi-Fi can slow to an unworkable speed at times. Very nice park. Beautiful grounds. Wide spots with grass and trees. Road noise from Hwy 20 but quiets down at night. Close to Sisters, OR and about 20 minutes to Bend. Love the area. We would and will stay here longer next time.

Nice state park. We arrived on a Thursday. The entire park may have had 6 campers. Very quiet. But come the weekend, the whole parked filled up. Lots of families. Great hiking trails. Sites are spacious. Costs are high in WA state parks, in my opinion.

Second time we have stayed here. Very nice, clean, and well manicured. Staff are very friendly. Sites are a little tight. Dedicated DSL Internet connection is a nice addition. If you don't have an Ethernet cable, they will provide one for a $20 returnable deposit.

Not a bad little park. Right on roadway with no fencing. Road noise but does quiet down at night. Although logging trucks start rolling by around 4 AM. We were expecting a higher weekend rate but were pleasantly surprised to be told our entire time was at $25/night. Then found out about the rally car race over the weekend with the casino as the home base. Pretty noisy with the cars coming and going. Maybe that was why the rate was lower than expected. The park has a few big rig friendly sites (get #9) but most sites are for pretty small travel trailers. Nice wide sites with lots of grass. Wifi was slow during normal use hours. Laundry and bathroom facilities very nice. Wash/dry was $0.75 each. Wow! Good time to catch up on all the wash. Overall, good experience. Would stay again but thank goodness for the white noise machine we carry. It was needed over the weekend.

Nice to be able to stay here when having work done. It's free but the noise from passing trucks and heavy equipment is bad. It is an industrial area. One plus was the Camping World near by.

Must be an Elk member. One of the better Elks RV parks. Reasonably quiet. Good food and drink here. They have a small laundry room with newer washers and dryers (2 each). That was a nice surprise.

Must be an Elk to stay here. Nice wide sites. FHU. Very quiet for a Saturday night. Great stop over for the night.

Rate was Passport America. We just stopped for the night. Office staff very friendly. She put us in Space 2 and directed us to park at an angle into Space 1 so we would not have to disconnect. We were very appreciative of that. Went for a walk along the canal in back of the park. Nice place to stretch the legs. Did not use the bathrooms but did check them out. Looked very clean. Nice large laundry as well. A little dusty since the park is all gravel. Lots of TV over the air. Many Spanish speaking. Of course, you can practically throw a rock into Mexico. We would stop hear again.

Nice Elks. Need to be a member. We stayed in the full hook-up section. Watch the water pressure! Pretty high. Some road noise from the nearby 101, but not bad at night. Good location to explore the area in between Paso Robles and Santa Barbara. Found some fun wine tasting in the Foxen Canyon area. We would stay here again.

OK, a little more info is needed to find this place. There are no signs for the park but you can make the assumption you are there when you see the ball park and the rodeo facility. No signage about the RV hook ups. We gambled and pulled into the park (directly across from the People's Church parking lot) drove around back and spotted 8 hook ups not 12. Also these are only pull-thrus IF there is room to pull behind and face out. No one was here so it was easy but if other RV's present, it will be a problem if you want to avoid unhooking your tow. Ground was rough and not level. But...good power, water, and sewer. Will work for an overnight but not much else in my opinion. Honor system self pay.

Nice wide sites. Very clean. We were hit by a severe thunderstorm with over 85 MPH winds the first night. It knocked out power, downed trees, and tore off our 15' slide topper. Even though owner and staff were very busy with trying to clear trees and debris, they immediately helped with removing the damaged slide topper. Staff is very friendly. No power for 48 hours but not their fault. Whole area was out. Even with all that happened, this is one of the best KOAs we have stayed at. Highly recommend to all.

Date of Stay:

Rate is based on a weekly rate. Staff was friendly at check-in. Some of the interior roads are in rough shape and narrow. Broken, heaving asphalt mixed with gravel. Roadways and sites do not have clear separation. Hard to tell where one starts and the other ends. Our site was a tight fit for our coach. Good power and water pressure. I would probably stay here again but only after checking out what else was available.

This is a very nice park. During the check-in, the hosts (who were extremely friendly and welcoming) made some recommendations for eating out. You have got to try Big Boys BBQ. Yumm! The grounds of the park are beautifully maintained. Our space was very nice and roomy. All of the lake front sites were already taken. I would recommend one of those if you get the opportunity. We stopped here for two nights encounters to Knoxville. Next time we will stay here longer.

Great location to visit Garden of the Gods, Old Colorado, and Pike's Peak. A little disappointed in the site. Could not get level without front tires coming off the ground. The sewer hook up was right near my neighbor's front door. I think the price does not reflect the amenities or the quality of the park. I would stay here again if the price was lower.
